ART dealers seem to have an opinion about everything and a great willingness to share it. Ex-soldiers are known for reticence, especially about their military experiences. Robert Gunderman is an Army veteran and the co-owner and operator of ACME, one of Los Angeles' leading galleries of contemporary art. As a dealer, he's unusual because he won't talk your ear off when there's art to be looked at.

San Francisco's Capp Street Project is celebrating its 10th anniversary with a forward-looking benefit exhibition and sale. Executive Director Linda Blumberg has invited 80 artists, architects and designers to redesign the American flag for "Old Glory, New Story: Flagging the 21st Century," on view through Feb. 4. The coming of a new millennium seemed a good time to examine a hallowed symbol of the country and to think about possible models for the future, Blumberg says.

Joyce Lightbody is a visual artist with as much interest in music as painting. Inspired by Conceptual artists who believed that art could manifest itself in almost any activity, for 10 years she composed a cappella choral music. Two years ago, she was invited to compose an instrumental piece for the carillon at UC Santa Barbara. Along the way, she exhibited her scores in alternative and institutional spaces, but commercial galleries remained leery. Until now.

In the waning years of this century, art world aficionados have declared several times that painting is finished, dead. Despite their proclamations, artists are still painting--even those just coming out of school. Yet many contemporary artists offer something quite different from the widely regarded Impressionist landscape in a gold frame or still life watercolor of fruits or flowers. The content and materials of their compositions challenge the viewer to contemplate more than a pretty picture.

Showing and selling art by offbeat younger artists has become a guerrilla operation in parts of Los Angeles, thanks to the sharp eyes and innovative methods of a few maverick dealers. Cheaply run short-term commercial galleries have sprung up in unleased offices, private homes and even in shopping-mall store windows.

The pale turquoise industrial building on the corner of Nebraska Avenue and Berkeley Street in Santa Monica has seen better days. Until you spot a sign for the Dan Bernier Gallery on a side gate and a placard with a big black arrow pointing the way to ACME, you might think the two-story structure is a deserted relic of some light manufacturer's faded dream.

The art world, like all worlds, runs on cliches. That's why it's so easily understood and so impenetrable at the same time. What can you do with an obtuse critic, mercenary dealer or unimaginative collector? Especially if you are a firebrand artist invited to participate in a big show, you can't sleep at night because a gimmicky idea threatens to seduce you, and the fan is broken in your studio-cum-apartment?

In a city that's better known for being on the move than honoring traditions, Photo L.A. is something of an anomaly. Now in its seventh year--and scheduled to appear at Butterfield & Butterfield from Friday through next Sunday--the annual photography fair has succeeded in attracting a varied but consistently well-regarded group of vendors and a loyal audience. Organized by Los Angeles photography dealer Stephen Cohen, Photo L.A.

Among the myriad offerings of "LAX/94," the biennial survey of Los Angeles-based art currently at a variety of area venues, is a large, group show at Otis Art Gallery called "Sincerity and Other Peccadillos." The title is provocative, if misleading. Lumping sincerity in with unspecified peccadilloes is meant to imply that in the context of 1990s art, sincerity is a slight offense, somehow off-color and therefore quite daring.

Just as art is constantly being redefined, so too is the vehicle by which artists traditionally get their work seen--The Gallery. As the recession continues to take its toll, younger artists and those producing less-marketable work are increasingly left out of the picture as commercial galleries turn to more proven talents to keep their businesses alive.
